For an actress and model, Kajal Aggarwal, motherhood has meant realising the priceless power of love towards her newborn baby boy, Neil. It has taught her to truly appreciate the challenges of a postpartum journey, which sometimes included sleepless nights and sweet cuddles in the wee hours of the morning. Though her life after giving birth to a baby doesn’t seem glamorous, she found her heart and soul in cradling the little one to sleep.
On December 17, 2022, Kajal Aggarwal took to her IG handle and shared a montage featuring priceless glimpses of Neil’s growing up. Moments from his first flight, pool time with mommy to smiling in her arms, the video perfectly portrayed the relationship of a mother with her son. In the clip, we also spotted Neil’s father, Gautam Kitchlu, who accompanied his family in making memories. Alongside the post, Kajal penned:
“My tiny, growing up so fast.”

Pregnancy is often touted as a fascinating period, but most moms would agree that it does little to prepare a woman for what comes after. For Kajal, it meant learning to latch and burp, squishy bellies and stretched skin, frozen pads, breast pumps and uncertainty. She fervently prayed to handle the new roles that life introduced. Today, she learnt from the testing period and looks back at this with a feeling of pride.
In the eight months since her baby boy, Neil arrived into this world, Kajal has come to enjoy the little moments with her sunshine. On November 14, 2022, she celebrated Children’s Day for the first time with her son. Taking to her IG feed, Kajal posted two mushy pictures from a flight. In the portrait, she was seen holding Neil in her arms and planting a sweet peck on his forehead. While Kajal looked pretty in a basic white T-shirt and black pants, her baby was seen sleeping soundly in a black and white striped onesie.
Kajal’s doting hubby, Gautam Kitchlu, usually likes to stay low-key. But the actress keeps treating us with some precious daddy-son moments on her Instagram feed. On Father’s Day 2022, Kajal had dropped a picture on the photo-sharing app, in which Gautam was seen performing his daddy duties like a pro. While mothers are known as the best hugger, Gautam proved the notion wrong by sharing a peaceful cuddle with his newborn. In the picture, Gautam was seen pampering Neil while Neil was resting on his chest.
Earlier, when Kajal was pregnant, it was Gautam who took care of her as an ideal partner would do. From waking up before sunrise for Kajal’s morning sickness, sleeping with her on the couch and ensuring that she is fed well, the doting hubby did it all. On April 14, 2022, Kajal had posted a romantic picture on her IG with Gautam. Moreover, she dedicated an appreciation post to him. In the post, she had called him the best father that their baby could ask for.
We love how Kajal captured Neil’s growing-up years!
